Zhrnutí:
"Virginia d'Albert-Lake was one of thousands who risked their lives saving downed airmen along the Comet escape line which stretched from Belgium to Gibraltar. What distinguished Virginia from other resisters was that she was an American citizen who had the option to return to the safety of her native country. Yet she chose to remain in France, where her dangerous work with the Comet line nearly cost her her life.".
